Now if we are getting a story lead from a website that has .gov behind it, then we tend to think that is pretty credible. We know we've been going back and forth between Quanta and Foxccon, but that seems to have worked itself out. Foxccon is taking care of iMacs, and Quanta is taking care of MacBooks... we think.
An article published by the Taiwanese Government Information Office on Monday, states that the Vice Chairman and President of Quanta, C.C Leung, is expecting to see a considerable amount of growth in the netbook market during 2009. The growth forcast has to do with the company's existing list clientel of HP, Sony Japan, Acer, Lenovo, and BenQ. But, the company is expecting to sign on Sony US and Apple as clients for their 2009 productions.
ZOMG Apple is making netbooks!!1!! Whoa, hold on there Skippy.
Steve Jobs hopped onto the fourth-quarter company conference call back in October to share his thoughts on the netbook market.
"We're not tremendously worried. As we look at the netbook category,
that's a nascent category. As best as we can tell, there's not a lot of
them being sold. You know, one of our entrants into that category if
you will is the iPhone, for browsing the Internet, and doing email and
all the other things that a netbook lets you do. And being connected
via the cellular network wherever you are, an iPhone is a pretty good
solution for that, and it fits in your pocket."
So there you go. We wouldn't hold our breath for an Apple netbook.
